Project Description

New Jersey KIDS COUNT, a project of Advocates for Children of New Jersey (ACNJ), is part of the national KIDS COUNT network, a state-by-state effort funded by the Annie E. Casey Foundation to track the status of children at the local, state and national levels. The project’s major goal is to provide policymakers, advocates and the public with meaningful, reliable and timely data about the well-being of New Jersey children. New Jersey KIDS COUNT reports on a wide variety of indicators such as demographics, economic well-being, health, early care and education, child protection, juvenile justice and teens and young adults, among others. New Jersey Kids Count data are available in an interactive, online format through the KIDS COUNT DATA CENTER at www.datacenter.kidscount.org. There, you can access data for multiple years, create charts, graphs and maps and compare New Jersey to other states. In addition, ACNJ produces various Kids Count publications that include data on the state, county and city levels. These reports are available in hard copies, as well as on-line at www.acnj.org.
